How to delete a Facebook group on desktop or mobile

Facebook group owners can delete a group by first removing all members. Once the owner is the only person in a group, then they will have the option to delete it.

Group admins can archive a group, meaning that the group will no longer appear in Facebook search to non-members, and no new members can join. Admins can only delete a group if the original owner first leaves the group.
